Available from 2018 in the 2019 QX50 premium SUV, this is one of the most advanced internal combustion engines ever created. Twenty years in the making, it’s ready to bring you more power and endurance on demand.
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING
For decades, many have tried. One has succeeded. The new VC-Turbo engine from INFINITI is one of the most advanced internal combustion engines ever created. The arrival of the variable compression ratio engine will establish new benchmarks – for power, efficiency and emissions – against which future powertrains will be measured.
300 PATENTS AND COUNTING, 20 YEARS IN THE MAKING
The VC-Turbo is an inspired fusion
of two worlds. It combines the power of a high-performance 2.0 litre gas
engine with the torque and efficiency of an advanced diesel powertrain.
A feat of engineering that takes you further, faster.
UNCOMPROMISED PERFORMANCE AND EFFICIENCY
Moving seamlessly between between
compression ratios, the VC-Turbo engine from INFINITI responds to the
car’s driving conditions and continuously adapts. Transforming on demand
from 8:1 for high performance to 14:1 for high efficiency. Performance
when you need it, ultimate efficiency when you don’t.
TWO SIDES OF A WORLD’S FIRST
HOW IT WORKS
The VC-Turbo uses a multi link system that changes the stroke of the piston from high compression ratio 14:1 (fuel efficiency) to low compression ratio 8:1 (high performance).
A NEW BREED OF ENGINE
The VC-Turbo features lower fuel consumption, increased efficiency and higher output than comparable non-VC engines.
27% FUEL EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENT OVER NON-VC ENGINES.
HIGHER POWER OUTPUT THAN MANY FOUR CYLINDER NON-VC ENGINES.
10DB VIBRATION NOISE. 20DB LOWER THAN NON-VC ENGINES.
